Hora of hope

Dancers (above) from the Tikvah Music and Dance School at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco will perform a traditional hora and other dances at Israel in the Gardens during the “Schools Tell Stories” segment at 11 a.m. on the main stage, presented by the Israel Education Initiative. The dances were choreographed by Nataliya Stinerman and Karina Rosinzonsky. The Tikvah choir also will sing a medley of traditional and contemporary Israeli songs. Tikvah is a bilingual, bicultural program taught in English and Russian that encourages Jewish involvement through weekly Shabbat celebrations, family education and cultural performances.
